AutoTecknic Carbon Interior Trim Review

Several months ago I bought the AutoTecknic complete carbon fiber interior trim kit. Out of the box quality looked great but we all know that the proof is in the fit and finish. I must say that overall the kit was a 9 as far as fitment goes. There are only a couple of trouble areas. The rear ash tray cover I had to discard completely since it wouldn't fit at all even after doing some modifications on it. The only other trouble spot is the right side of the upper dash piece which just doesn't go back into the dash perfectly. This is probably not noticeable to people who didn't install it. Even though I would have to ditch one piece of the kit, I would still say that it is very nice and I am super happy with it.

Ur interior looks exactly just like my. My CF interior was actually their very first sold kit. Nvr had a chance to take the pics, but your interior looks great

The one installed in my car is nearly perfect even with the rear ash tray. I would give them 9.5 out of 10

It's not bad... I guess. I'm not a fan of those pedals much, but then again, this thread is not about them
